Mesquite Convention Center and Exhibit Hall

This year – 2015-16 – marks the golden anniversary of the Dallas County Community College District. More than 3 million students have walked through our doors. Countless careers have been launched, communities have been helped and economic development has moved forward with the support of DCCCD’s graduates and employees. We are community partners. We are education partners. We are workforce and economic development partners.

Throughout our first 50 years – and during the next 50 years – we will continue to follow the “DCCCD Way.” The DCCCD Way represents the culture of our district, the traditions of our district, the history of our district, the expectations of stakeholders, our role in the community and the priorities of the DCCCD Board of Trustees.

Our 50th anniversary is a celebration of the DCCCD Way, and we invite you to join us as we honor the past and continue to build for the future – together.

Joe D. May
Chancellor
Dallas County Community College District
